Team Competitive Edge has made their second big move in less than a week by picking up world champion Phillip Brumme. The 16-year-old Houston native is one of the top young talents in the sport, coming off of a 14-17 boys CMX weapons grand championship at the Compete Internationals in February. His résumé also includes an overall grand championship at the 2021 Pan American Internationals and an appearance in the coveted ISKA Night of Champions finals at the 2021 U.S. Open. He is ranked by Black Belt Magazine as a top five competitor in both the junior CMX forms and weapons divisions.
He is considered the top kama competitor in his division and immediately gives the Competitive Edge roster yet another overall grand championship contender. His world class tricking ability and diverse skillset will make him an instrumental part of Competitive Edge's two-time world championship demonstration team that will seek a title defense this July. Brumme is expected to make his debut for the team at the upcoming Ocean State Grand Nationals.
